Today’s enterprises require a complete picture of their own security postures and that of their third parties. A new study, conducted by Forrester and commissioned by BitSight, revealed that while roughly 59 percent of IT security decision-makers wish to track the security effectiveness of third parties, only 2 percent monitor on a monthly basis.
